Community Matters at John Lewis Bluewater

The Freddie Farmer Foundation has been selected to be one of three benefiting charities for the John Lewis 'Community Matters' scheme at John Lewis Bluewater from today, until the end of July.

Community Matters is a charitable giving scheme that runs throughout the John Lewis shops, it’s a similar scheme at your local Waitrose.

The store will have £3000 to donate which will be split between the charities according to the proportion of the vote they've received from customers. This means that if a charity receives 31% of the votes, it'll receive a £910 donation.

Charities will receive support in whichever way will benefit them the most, either in the form of John Lewis products, volunteering time from Partners, or as financial support.

The Community Matters boxes will be located in the catering area. Customers will be given one token per transaction, and will be able to follow how much of the vote each organisation receives over the three months.

Please use your token to vote for Freddie Farmer Foundation.
